Movie poster of the weekOctober 8, 2007
I’d never seen this poster for Edward Yang’s masterpiece A Brighter Summer Day until GreenCine posted a thumbnail of it the other day. 2007 will always be remembered as the year we lost Antonioni and Bergman in one fell swoop, but the untimely death of Edward Yang in July hit me hardest. I wish I’d thought to petition the New York Film Festival to show the four hour cut of the film this year as a tribute. After all, they passed on the film back in 1991 (as did Cannes) and it would have been their chance to make amends. Maybe next year?
